fall on our kids' schools and mental healthcare just to protect loopholes for corporate jet owners? are they really willing to slash border patrol because they refuse to eliminate taxbreaks for big oil companies? are they seriously prepared to inflict more pain on the middle class because they refuse to ask more from those at the very top? >> the republican response says the oil pipeline is one way to create jobs and grow the economy. automatic spending cuts could deeply affect the lives of hundreds of people in the bay area. employees of the faa will be forced to take furlough of at least one day per pay period. passengers could see 90 minute delays at airports and many flights would be cancelled. as many as five bay area control towers could shut down. that's their plan to close as many as 100 airports that have fewer than 150,000 flight operations yearly.

about to change. we is the story from sacramento. >> when you buy something with a credit card at a store in california workers are not allowed to ask you for he personal information like a home address, phone number or e-mail. it's spelled out in a law called the beverly act. but the state supreme court earlier this month sided with apple saying those consumer protections do not apply to downloadable products like i-tune songs and videos. >> it throws out all privacy protections for people doing online purchases for downloads and we think the next step will be for any online customers. >> they are trying to fix that with a bill that would extend currently privacy protections to online stores but still allow companies to deck credit card fraud. that means getting rid of a customer's information shortly after the purchase. >> they can't aggregate that with other information to develop profiling about you as a consumer, your habits. >> online retailers are already concerned.
many companies are based outside california and feel state lawmakers have no jurisdiction. plus the measure spoils one of the conveniences of shopping if that information can't be kept. >> consumers often time opt in to allow their information to be stored by the retailer so when they return again for another purchase the retailer knows who they are. it's a great experience for an online customer. >> many itunes customers we spoke to look forward to more privacy. >> it worries me to give out more personal information than you have to. >> we shouldn't have any type of a retailer or any type of a business saying, oh, we can take your information and we can do what we would like. >> in-court documents consumer group states they don't state why they kneed information and what they do with it. similar privacy cases are pending begins e harmony and ticketmaster.

[ wind howling ] easier than actually going to the bank. mobile check deposit. easier banking. standard at citibank. >> welcome back. lisa argen is here with a look at the forecast. it's one thing now and it will be something different later. >> you are right. a weak frontal ban has moved through the area but another system allowing for sprinkles around and for wind to visit us today. as we head outside, it looks quiet but we are picking up some returns. if you look closely, the national weather service radar in monterey is picking up a few sprinkles and out to the east in the higher elevations.
really not a whole lot to talk about. but i have the -- had the wipers on this morning, and you may too if you live in the south bay or along the central coast where we have moisture left over. here's a live look outside. it's clear. lower 50s in oakland. 41 petaluma with 45 santa cruz a look at the bay bridge. the clouds are lingering well to the east in never more but here it looks good with temperatures in the upper 50s out by the delta. boy, is it breezy out there. the higher elevation winds and the winds coming off the water will, in fact, allow us to feel cooler today, but they will also erode the cloud cover that is hanging on in parts of the bay. so some sprinkles and clouds to start out, especially south. we will look for the breeze to kick in throughout the west rest of the day. we will see more sunshine not only today and tomorrow but it will warm up tomorrow. then high pressure builds in the rest of the work week. you know what that means.
it means an extended dry period through the rest of the month. then as we begin march, not looking like any precip. although march can be very cold and rainy. we will hold on to hopefully that thought as we go through the next week or so. 12 degrees warmer this morning in mountain view. notice all around the bay area with that cloud cover, the higher dewpoints and that weak system that has pushed on through, we around as cold as we have been. as you notice the cloud cover, most of it is pressing to the south. high pressure is still offshore. as it builds on in, it will allow for the front to continue to sink south and clear on out the cloud deck. so this morning you notice the clouds from the east bay around hayward and fremont, along the san mateo coast and into the south bay. 10:00 we've got more sunshine around the bay. as high pressure sits offshore, it will allow for the northwesterly winds to keep us on the cool side today. as a result, maybe trimming a
few degrees off from our high temperatures. all and all, much of the state not feeling or looking much like february. cool 50s at the coast but 60s in the interior with upper 60s around los angeles and 70s in palm springs. later on this afternoon look for about 62 in san jose. average highs in the low 60s. close to that but a couple pockets will be cooler with 60 in gilroy, 59 in mountain view. 55 in milbrae today with 60 for a high in menlo park. san francisco upper 50s. and it will feel a little cooler here, but it will brighten up. in fact, looking sunny to start out in much of the north bay. a little warmer in santa rosa than the rest of the bay at 63. only 58 in ukiah. numbers ranking from the upper 50s richmond and berkeley. 58 in fremont. you head over the hills, right now it's a little gray out there but then 60 in livermore with san ramon a couple degrees cooler. here's the look ahead. you notice that today the coolest day out of the next
seven. tomorrow a little bit of warming. we will start out much colder. partly cloudy on monday but this means still a lot of sunshine, low to mid-60s. wednesday another weak system, not even close to us well out to the north and we are looking at numbers near 70s. but we have the san francisco polar plunge today that benefits special olympics downtown and the chinese new year's break. >> burr on the polar plunge. thank, lisa. in sports the saint mary's will try to bolster their resume hosting creighton. and stanford travels to oregon to play the 23rd-ranked ducks. last night the warriors played a thriller at oracle arena against the san antonio spurs who own the best regard in the nba. here's larry beil with the highlights in this morning's sports. >> good morning, everybody. spectacular game at oracle arena last night. the warriors without andrew bogut, out with back spams, looking to end a 16-game losing streak against the san antonio
